What’s new in this release:
- This app uses VoiceOver to be fully accessible to the blind and visually impaired. Thanks to Kevin Jones and Eric Knapp for encouraging me to do this.
- The app is localized into Malay, Indonesian, Arabic and French.
- You can zoom in to the page and make the text larger. Thanks to the many users who convinced me to add this feature.
- When turning the page, the page follows your finger, so you can turn slowly or fast.
- The images have been optimized for the Retina displays on the iPad, iPhones and iPod Touch.
- This app is now fully compatible with the larger screen of the iPhone 5.
- The default reciter has been changed to Sheikh Mishary bin Rashid Alafasy. You can download additional reciters from within the app.
- The audio quality has been improved. With support for Retina displays and higher quality audio, the size of the app has increased, but you still don’t need internet access to use the app.
- The default translation is that of Saheeh International. Hard copies of this translation of the Meanings of the Qur’an are available from Al-Muntada Al-Islami Trust (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org)
- You can optionally prevent your device from locking and stopping audio playback when playing an audio loop. Thanks to everyone who suggested this feature.
- You can pause an audio loop by tapping on the current ayah, and then resume the loop later.
- There is now a text-only mode that allows you to navigate quickly to the next and previous ayah.
- You can open this app from any email or document that contains a link of the form quran://114/1
- Various bug fixes
Jazaakum Allah Khairan to all the people who reported the bugs.
- Deleting a note causes the app to crash.
- Running an audio loop on Surah Fatiha causes the app to crash.
- The start button does not show up properly when the app is launched on the iPad in landscape mode.
These bugs are easy to fix and will be fixed in a few days, inshaAllah. I apologize for the inconvenience.
